MUST BE DONE It is now admitted by nearly every body, except those living in the sec tions which are benefited by au ex tremely high tariff, that the time has about arrived when this country must again seriously take up the matter of making new tariff schedules in order that the trade conditions as they now exist may be met. This is admitted by both the republicans and the demo crats The former desire, of course, that the revision of the schedules and the reciprocal arrangements shall be made by the friends of the protective policy, ami there is no doubt but that they will have the first chance at the job. While it is not likely that any thing will be done until after the uext election, that will not change conditions in the least, becaus.- President Koose velt and a republican congress are al most as certain in l!*M asthev are now. Only a miracle can prevent the nation from going republican next year. Then what? A tarriff policy must be adopted that will lead to the develop ment of foreign commerce. The home market is now secure. A foreign mar ket must be found, and we must be ready to make concessions in order that we may get it. The late lYesident McKiniey and President Roosevelt are loth on record in favor of such a pro gram, and it will probably be followed In the meantime every effort should be made toward the formation of a com mercial union with t-'anada that the Chamberlain program in England inay Sir Charles Tuppe r. at onetime lead er of the conservative partv in Canada, blames Sir Wilfrid I dinner for losing the Alaskan boundary controversy. Nonsen-"-! Sir Wilfr J. and his govern ment made a tight to win that contest that is the admiration of everyone who has followedjt. Canada's plucky, per sistent and highly patriotic efforts to get the victory in the negotiations in this matter, were worthy of a better case, to the weakne^sof which can Ca nadians solely charge their defeat.

Her aunt, Mrs. Harvan, sighed also In deep satisfaction, not. however, over the departure of the pianist, because ?be had been deaf to music and all other sonuds these teu comfortable years. Her contentment was due to the fact thut she had steered Clarice through aii entire summer at Ocean View wlthoi.t ouce liavlug permitted a tete-a-tete with Carleton Jasou. though be had not missed a single Sunday since their arrival. There was 110 particular reason w hy Mrs. Harvan should discriminate against Carl save that lie bad found favor In Clarice's eyes and Mrs. liar van wanted ber pretty niece to herself. She lo\ed her, but with a love that was completely selfish, though never lacking lu generosity. Clarice was Showered with all the good thiugs of life sate that which she uvw wanted most of all? love.

Worst of all. this was Clarice's last night at the hotel. On the morrow she and Mrs. Harvan would return to their home in an In laud city, whither Carl could not fol low them ami still make his sailing j date on Saturday. Curl was tliiukiiig wrathfully of this twentieth century bondage when his eye caught the gleam of Clarice's guitar, lie started to his feet; then, with well assumed noncha lance. strolled into the parlor. When Clarice heard the twirl of the piano Bt'ml, she made a tiny moue, pre pared to be bored again by some in i-oiup tent uiusicijiu She preferred si lence aud her thoughts of Curl.

A moment's pause and then Clarice smiled merrily, fot there floated out from the parlor the strains of a popu lar song. "Ain't It a Shame?" 'I he guitar promptly answered, "1'ze Wait ed.

And she smiled again at a moment later the uiualc changed to "Take Your Clothes and (Jo," for she realized tluit this musical hint was not for her. Carl waited a moment for lur com ment. which came tinkling in the re 1 fraln of "You're All Bight. but You ; Can't King In," to be answered by "1 I Don't Waut to Play lu Your Yard" mid "Won't You Come Out and Play?" from the piano. 1 Clarli-e glanced at her aunt.

A vivid blush uiouutcd to the 1 girl's forehead, and she glanced nerv ously at her aunt. Surely such a keeu eyed chaperon must mark her embar rassment. For a moment the guitar lay untouched.

But this mild disapproval changed to vehennn! gestures when he caught up the mouth piece of the tlexible ear trumpet the el dcr woman carried.
